. but they have to try to check this out. there's a heavy dose of skepticism among a lot of retired fbi agents who directly worked on this case saying why in the world wod the mob have buried someone in the middle of this nice neighborhood, why would they have done that? they believe that whoever got rid of hoffa incinerated his body, literally, years and years ago. but there is a quick mob connection here. a bookie for detroit mobster john giacalone did used to live in this house years ago so maybe they'll follow through with this lead. 2006, i was 40 miles away from here when the fbi followed up another what they called credible lead and dug up a horse farm. ultimately, finding nothing. perhaps things will be different this time, soledad. >> perhaps they will. or perhaps not. susan candiotti for us this morning. let's go right to dan moldea, the author of "the hoffa wars." he's been following the story since jimmy hoffa disappeared. he talked with this new tipster recently. susan candiotti just was showing us pictures of a horse farm being dug up. same reason. how legitimate do you think this ti

after the attack, fbi agents still have not reached benghazi and the consulate still has not been secured. jane harman is a former democratic congresswoman. she was the chairman of the house intelligence committee, and now she heads the wilson center. we're so glad to have you here this morning. so hillary clinton yesterday gave something of a new explanation for what happened in benghazi. the response fm the administration, the splax, has been evolving over the last ten days or so. i want to listen to what she said. >> for some time, al qaeda in the islamic maghreb and other groups have launched attack into neighboring mali and other countries. and they are working with other violent extremists to undermine the violent transitions underway in north africa, as we tragically saw in benghazi. >> now, she is the highest member of the administration, the highest ranking member to say this on the record so far. but we have these new reports that say they knew it from day one. what's taken so long? >> i doubt they knew it from day one. and i think the situation or the facts are evolving

to libya and three others? >> yeah. it's difficult to say because the fbi is over there. but it's hard to carry out an investigation on the ground right now. that is such a -- libya itself is confusing. that benghazi area is one of the most confusing of all. it's an al qaeda stronghold out there. there's also al sharia which is basically a conglomeration of jihadist paramilitaries. i can't tell you with any real certainty how accurate these investigations are. a lot of people have been picked up by the libyan authorities. how guilty they really are, i don't know. we're still in the fog of war. we're in an area where we don't have that many assets on the ground. we have a libyan government which i think actually to give them credit, i think the libyan government itself is trying to work with us. unlike president morsi in egypt, libyans are trying. but it's a very new government. it's ineffective government. out in benghazi there's virtually no security. we're talking about a consulate which had, again, virtually no security. there were no military back-ups for our ambassador out there.

round number. >>> the fbi is joined in the search for a missing northwestern university student. straight a pre-med student disappeared over the weekend after attein off-campus. police say they don't have any lead yet. >>> the pentagon issued rules how to handle no easy day. that's the unauthorized account of bin laden's takedown written by one of the neal s.e.a.avy s.o shot him. allowing pentagon work toers buy the book and they do not have to store it away as classified information. but also they are not allowed to speculate or discuss potentially classified and sensitive unclassified information with people who don't have an official need to know. clear that up for me. >> all right. >>> ever wish you could make sure there won't be any crying babies on nor next flight? always my children. air asia started advertising a quiet zone starting this february. the first seven rows reserved exclusively for passengers ages 12 and up. does that mean -- does that mean i can leave my kids in the back of the plane? >>> talking about it for days. tackled in a new song parody. ♪ got a call
